2. Uwangalifu katika Huduma ya Fungu la Kumi
Stewardship, Ministry, and the Tithe
(44:55)
(Swahili and English)

An overview of the topics of stewardship and tithing, including the history and purpose of the tithe. The main points of this message are:

  1. Everything belongs to God. Kila kitu ni cha Mungu (Psalm 24:1; Deuteronomy 10:14).
  2. We are stewards over God's property. Sisi ni walinzi kwa vitu vya Mungu (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Matthew 25:14-30; 1 Corinthians 4:2).
  3. The tithe belongs to the Lord. Fungu la kumi ni la Mungu (Leviticus 27:30-33).
  4. God uses the tithe to provide for His ministry on earth. Mungu hutumia fungu la kumi kupeana kwa hutuma yake hapa duniani (1 Samuel 8:17; Genesis 14:20; 28:22; Numbers 18:21-24; Deuteronomy 12:6-19; 14:22-29; 26:12-15).

Tithing is linked to spiritual renewal and revival in the Bible (Hezekiah - 2 Corinthians 31:2-10, 10; Nehemiah 13:10-12). The principle carries over to the New Testament (Matthew 23:23; 1 Corinthians 9:13-14). We are not under law, but under grace. However, to give less under grace than under law is a dis-grace.

This teaching was given by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson at African Renewal Pastors' Training Conference in Eldoret, Kenya, October 26-29, 2011. It is available as part of a DVD set in PAL format. It is part of a series of videos on YouTube on giving and tithing.
